|Javier Hernando - Quebrantos|
brand new album by Spanish pioneer Javier Hernando. The music that creates a transfuture (distant) borns from the heart of the abyss of the ultraforgotten. (María Zambrano) These words included in the sleeve suggests the spirit of this CD recorded between 2002 and 2004, also the influence of the loss and absence of love ones and scenary then is in the four austere fragile poemodulations, the ripple of a broken remembrance in a medium of fragile quite life.

Introduction Questioning what kind of sound could possibly be heard when sending an e-mail, whilst on a journey across a network and whether the sound differs when you receive an e-mail or when any form of data is being transferred across a Network. A New Musical Environment The opportunity presented itself when an IT friend and I were having a conversation about his place of work and invited me to pop along and record the potential sounds...

|Heribert Friedl - converge .ep [cnv 10] - Heribert Friedl|
CONVERGE, the title of Heribert Friedl's latest composition serves perfectly to underline the artist's conceptual approach to music. Distinct, fragile sounds, at times crumbling, at times rustling and droning, all move towards the same point within an organic micro-audio space. Friedl's understanding of sculpturing material in space is strongly reflected in his treatment of sounds. The quality of each sound, like the delicate sound of metal grinding or the subtle rustling of leafs, is shaped wit...
|Christian Toonk - unison [cnv 24] - christian toonk|
The basic idea for "unison" is the phenomenon of binaural tones. When the distance between congruence frequencies is changed, pulsations occur. Here, Dutch artist Christian Toonk (vinculated to the Utrecht based collective Umatic among others projects) uses a self build instrument based on sinewave oscillators and feedback loops. The output is rewired to the input and provides a somewhat unpredictable datastream, by means of creating an opponent to interact to as in collaboration...

|omnid - camo .ep [cnv32] - albert casais|
It seems as though there isn't much room left for dance music in the current avant-obsessed and cut-throat world of experimental electronic music, but New Jersey resident Albert Casais is keeping the party going with his funk-infused Omnid project. Using an array of cutting edge software and his trusty Nord Lead, Casais creates a lyrical, but cold and robotic journey through abstraction, culminating in the slippery rhythms of 'milikk'--chunked trash beats cemented by a dizzying lead, endlessly l...

|Christopher McFall - a starved-strafe lancing machine [cnv 25] - christopher mcfall|
This is the debut release by Kansas City based artist Christopher McFall " I strive to use computer-based techniques to manipulate/engineer recorded aspects of the macroscopic world into a microscopic mosaic. I feel that the 3 compositions comprising "A Starved-Strafe Lancing Machine," are of a minimal and microscopic nature that is the outcome of several years of experimentation with field recordings, whereby sounds are recorded and then often times engineered beyond recognition...

|Brian Lavelle - the houses of the russians [cnv 19] - Brian Lavelle|
_________________ The Houses of the Russians was composed during 2004 entirely of locally recorded field recordings manipulated using Max/MSP on a PowerBook G4. Each of the pieces is a live improvisation, without overdubs or further post-recording sound processing. Like the eponymous dwellings, the six segments of this work are deliberately unnatural and out of place; they exist as nebulous entities, storm clouds born of confusion - 'Their houses are supposed to be unlucky, and no one goes near ...

|Sascha Neudeck - seroton .ep [cnv38] - sascha neudeck|
This new sound output [seroton] of sascha neudeck (biochemist and musician, based in vienna) is to carry out a test by the idea of different drone-interpretations. It is more a collection of different quotations in doing with such these topics. The result is quite different to his previous work, which was more noise- and random-oriented. This new section is quite a try to arrange such these things - from totally abstract elements to poetic narrative parts...

I've basically contact mic'd the upstairs bedrooms and various parts of the house, including various appliances (ones that run day-round) and windows/backyard (for outdoor sounds). the idea was to do a live, real-time mix, processing the sounds of the sleeping family/house, and gradually lifting off...slowly separating to outdoor sounds, then to local radio sounds, longwave...mediumwave...shortwave....then finally to a live radiotelescope feed...

Whatever echoes fibrillate in the undulations of our neuronal fields? Memory faces up to itself in this one question: how did memory bring us here? Memory, the forgotten one - under the sway of the scythe of bliss memory flexes over in synaptic delusion to the experience of senselessness that only audition can bestow. It comes as the gift of angels to listen to this world while immersed in such oblivion...
